My passion is helping others find their mark. I thrive on turning mediocre into magnificent. As an art coach I witness painters, beginning, intermediate, and advanced, struggle with making their mark. The biggest breakthrough I witness is when a student actually understands what that means and discovers a new language unique to themselves. Certainly there are many paths to take, techniques to learn and products to play with, and they all have their place on the journey. My expertise is in helping others make that leap, to dive in and ride the wave of their own unique creative expression. Nothing thrills me more.
